Daz what did you get to seal them or didn’t you buy it as the stuff I used for the driveway I’m sure had a warning on about being toxic


Darren either G4 or clear pond seal

I wish Deano the gel coat hasn’t cured off properly so the lads are back Monday to sort it and re do the gel coat as when I started to fill it it’s all patchy and grey :roll: :roll: :roll:

Been a bit of a lull in progress as been waiting on the lads coming back to sort out the fibreglass as the gel coat needed re doing and there are a few pinholes on the base which I found when I drained it so after a horrendous few weeks weather and thinking they were going to just keep fobbing me off they are back this week to sort it and I’ve been able to get on with building the base for the filter house to go on just need to get a few more lengths of flooring to finish it off then work out how much wood I need to build the frame work and cladding ect

Looks like you’ve sanded down to bare wood :laughing-rolling:
Looks very tidy, wish I could be tidy instead of crap everywhere.
